Ravens’ McGahee Injured on Helmet-to-Helmet Hit

A league source who was watching the AFC title game contacted us by e-mail on Sunday night while Ravens’ trainers were tending to running back Willis McGahee, who at the time possibly had sustained a serious head and/or neck injury.

The source was livid regarding the fact that, while McGahee was laying on the turf, the folks who operate the sound system at Heinz Field opted to play rock music over the P.A. system.

Specifically, the selections were “Down On The Corner” by Creedence Clearwater Revival, and then “Smooth” by Santana featuring Rob Thomas.

Said the source: “There is a player on the field who may have suffered a life changing injury and the Steelers are playing party music. There are about five teams in the league that would engage in such horrific behavior. All others would cease all entertainment.

“‘Down on the corner’ . . . uh, there’s a man down on the field. About twenty-five to twenty-seven teams would cease all entertainment. Oh, now it’s a Santana song. This is beyond offensive. . . . Most teams would fire them on the spot. It’s disgusting.”

The source is on the money. The Steelers should address this situation immediately, so that it doesn’t happen when players are injured in the future.

And it would have been nice, as a commenter pointed out, to hear someone/anyone on the podium during the presentation of the Lamar Hunt Trophy express concern for McGahee, who was still willing to give his all at a time when the cause was all but lost.

Laura Bush Killed a Guy

Apparently this refers to an incident that happened with Laura Bush was 17; she ran a stop sign and was involved in a crash that killed a friend of hers in another car. Rumors have been floating around ever since the crash was first reported that she might have been criminally negligent (i.e. that she may have been drinking) at the time of the crash, but no chargers were filed and no evidence of wrong-doing was recorded. Here are just some of the sites that are talking about this today:

In 1963 Laura Bush was involved in a fatal car accident. Allegedly the outgoing First Lady ran a stop sign hitting another car and killing the driver, classmate Michael Dutton Douglas. As George W. Bush prepares to leave office Family Guy producers have decided to resurrect this terrible accident in an episode entitled "Laura Bush Killed a Guy."

The 1963 accident played out like any other vehicular tragedy without much media attention. Laura Bush was not yet First Lady of the United States and the accident made only local headlines. The Family Guy episode, which first ran on Sunday December 7th 2008, put the decades old story in the national spotlight. It remains a very painful part of Mrs. Bush's past and one that she had hoped to move beyond, but Family Guy Producers have other plans.

"Look Around You" comes to US cable this week

Did you know germs come from Germany? Or that mathematicians have yet to come up with a number larger than 45 million?

If not, tune into Adult Swim's Look Around You starting Sunday at 1 a.m. and get smart.

A nostalgic goof on interactive educational modules from the '70s and '80s, Robert Popper and Peter Serafinowicz's spoof is a nonsensical blast from the past.

If you like British humor and get a kick out of old educational movies, then Adult Swim's new addition to its programming lineup is just for you. Starting this Sunday at 1 a.m., it will be airing 14 episodes of Look Around You, a hilarious BBC spoof on classroom science videos.

Each nine-minute episode of the show attempts to teach you about such things as water, math (or "maths," in British lingo), and sports, but it's almost guaranteed you'll learn nothing useful - or accurate - by watching. You might, say, find out that all music is produced by a special music-making machine, or that the largest possible number in the world is "approximately 45 billion." It's dry, straightforward, and completely hilarious; it always makes me think of awkward science teachers in my past who wore a lot of tweed.

A few full episodes are on YouTube, but all you really need to watch to get a feel for the series are the opening credits, which just smack of the late '70s. You can check them out in the "Water" episode if you read more.
